John Mark McMillan 
Ashes and Flames 
From "The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)


Drop D on acoustic (See chord shapes below)

Verse 1
D                     G
You and I meet on the shores of the broken
D                                   Bm7
You swallow the ocean, I swallow my pride
D               G
Only to see the way that I need You
   D                       Bm7
Is more than I knew I ever could


Chorus 1
A7sus4                         Em7
In between the ashes and the flames
     A7sus                                Em7
Is a cry an awkward silence could never contain
        A7sus4 
And the falling of my hammers and the writhing of my pain
   G                                                  D        G
Is just not as real as the way that You're calling my name


Verse 2
I can't help thinking that the way that You want me
And the ghost that haunts me are one and the same
Cause you stand at my window at night while I'm sleeping
There's not a promise I'm keeping that could ever repay You


Chorus 2
A7sus4                         Em7
In between the ashes and the flames
          A7sus4                                Em7
There's a song that burns brighter than radio waves
        A7sus4 
About the remnants of my idols and the shadow of my shame
                G
About how they scatter like the rain and I can't stop crying
                                D
Cause You won't stop calling my name
           Bm7                D                Em7       
Calling my name,  calling my name, up from the ashes


Outro (end on D)
D - Bm7 - D4 - Em7 




As I said above, he's playing this in drop D. Here's the way I play the 
chords (and I'm pretty sure JMM is), but play them however sounds best for 
you.
   D      G    Bm7  A7sus  Em7    D     *Bm7 alternate position*  
e|--0-----3-----2-----0-----0-----2-------0----------------------------|
B|--3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-------7----------------------------|
G|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----2-------0----------------------------|
D|--4-----0-----0-----2-----2-----0-------0----------------------------|
A|--5-----5-----2-----0-----2-----0-------9----------------------------|
D|--0-----5-----x-----------2-----0-------9----------------------------|



Little slide interlude between C1 and V2
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------10-12-12s13s12-------------------------------|
G|--9-11-11s12s11------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------0----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

The other slide parts correspond to the underlying the chords. Just play
and riff on it. If you really want it tabbed out, let me know.

The Bm7 posted by SWLABR is definitely a good option as well! Thanks!

obviously, with the two E strings dropped to D, making it

D B G D A D
0 7 0 0 9 9
